We are a non-profit theatrical arts organization that strives to bring innovative contemporary theater in Wilmington.  Our mission is to present quality theatrical productions that are unique and thought provoking.

Panache Theatrical Productions

Born out of a conversation among friends late night on a porch,  the discussion went from our love of non-traditional theatre and music to a moment of insanity. We were inspired to try to produce "just one production".  We wanted to bring back a local favorite and Christmas tradition we missed seeing, The Santaland Diaries.  Somewhere along the way we lost our minds and decided to do a whole season. It has been three seasons since that crazy night.  Our mission expanded. So much for one production.


That was 2015.  Now we are a non-profit 501c3 dedicated to bringing unique theatrical choices to Wilmington, NC, and the surrounding communities.


Founding members Anthony David Lawson and Holli Saperstein encourage you to join them.  Join us on the stage, behind the scenes or as a wonderful member of our audience. We look forward to seeing you soon! 


We want your experience to be entertaining, refreshing and memorable.
